Jason Spooner Band and Lydia Luce will perform at the Waldo Theater


WALDOBORO – The Waldo Theater (916 Main St, Waldoboro) will host Maine’s Jason Spooner Band on stage on Wednesday, July 29 at 7 p.m. Lydia Luce of Nashville, Tennessee will open.

Portland-based songwriter, guitarist and producer Jason Spooner has been a visible and respected presence on the live music circuits of the Northeast and the country for nearly two decades, according to The Waldo, in a press release. . As bandleader of the Jason Spooner Band (Dan Boyden, drums; Stu Mahan, bass; and Dawson Hill, keyboards), Spooner greatly expanded his musical horizons during five studio outings.

“The quartet is distinguished by an interesting sonic signature that appeals to a wide range of audiences…seamlessly blending a variety of musical influences into a cohesive, energetic and listenable experience,” said The Waldo. “Roots rock, Americana, blues, folk, and groove-oriented jazz with undercurrents of reggae and soul are all represented here and backed by audible musicianship, interesting arrangements, and clever, well-crafted songwriting.”

“The recipe certainly served the group well,” said The Waldo; “Over the past decade and a half this dynamic group has played with artists as varied as BB King, John Mayer, Jackson Browne, Michael Franti & Spearhead, RayLaMontagne, Susan Tedeschi, Brett Dennen, Allen Stone, Everlast, Jackie Greene , G. Love, Guster, BluesTraveler, Peter Rowan and Sara Bareilles.

Drawing inspiration from musical references that span her orchestral training in contemporary classical, roots, indie rock and jazz, Nashville-based artist Lydia Luce is not limited to any singular genre.

“The richness of the orchestration of Lydia Luce’s latest album, garden songs, EP is striking on first listen, and fans can hear it as a return to his musical roots,” the statement said. “The mystery of why begins to unravel when she explains that she wrote it during an artist’s retreat on the island of Orcas, a small destination of about 57 square miles off the coast of Washington State coast known for its views of water, forest, rocks, beaches and blue skies.As is often the case for Luce, being in nature has fueled her creative spirit and writing in such a picturesque setting helped her focus her attention on the world around her.

Concessions, including beer and wine for those 21 and older, will be available at the show. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The Waldo no longer requires proof of vaccination and recommends masks for all visitors per current CDC guidelines. The theater limits its capacity in order to create space between the spectators.

Tickets are $25 in advance online and $30 in person the day of the show. Visit https://waldotheatre.org/pages/music.
